I think he is basically saying that ANOS is a misnomer.Most what are not NOS, and based on what experience and with what sellers? If you're going to make a blanket statement like this please back it up.
Timbre Wolf said a few years ago in a similar thread that "ANOS is just a sales-friendly euphemism for lightly used" and there is no arguing against that.
I have never seen this term applied anywhere else. It's confusing to the everyday tube buyer.
Now, it's silly this has to be said, but KCA is the A No. 1 ++ dealer of tubes on the web. Just so that's clear.
